An email from the Alliance of Land, Agriculture and Water about the McHenry County Board’s upcoming consideration of a more revealing conflict of interest ordinance follows:
Dear ALAW Members and Supporters,
We need your support more than ever Tuesday night!
The revised Disclosure Ordinance (Statement of Economic Interests) that ALAW presented to the County Board in December 2009, is reaching the County Board floor for a vote on Tuesday, November 16, 2010.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m.
The ordinance is the last thing on the agenda.
Please come to the meeting to show that you want this new level of transparency in McHenry County.
If you wish to speak in favor of passage that’s great!
If not just sign in as “for” the ordinance and be there as solid support.
Although much has been removed from the original ordinance and form, what is left is very important – full disclosure of real estate holdings and business/professional relationships.
Please help fill up the board room to let your county board representatives know you want this passed!
It’s about time!.
A copy of the revised ordinance is on the ALAW web site on this page.
